Re: Alternate Alternator Upgrade - Nissan/Infiniti

Fortunately, I never had a problem with battery & alternator and insufficient power running AC & lights. I've always had Deka 2nds from the factory lasting about 4+ years and I was mindful of fixing grounds and replacing wire when needed. Ed's comment <One possible contributing factor re Sco...

scorpio amore Welcome to "back to basics". 88 or 89, it uses a basic EEC controlling a basic v6. No complicated electronics. You've been making the parts suppliers very happy. Now it's time too find the problem rather than just throwing parts at it. Fortunately, you know what a code scanne...
